Morning, wonder if someone could advise. I am changing from an electric oven and gas hob to a freestanding electric oven and hob. The current hob is plumbed in as shown on the attachment. Would it be safe to turn this valve off and leave it like that permanently, or should I get someone in to seal it up for me?

Thanks in advance.

It needs capping off, which must be done by a Gas Safe registered plumber.

Just to add that the reason it needs to be capped is the tap might get knocked in the future if you were to rely on that solely as an end seal and gas could start escaping leading to problems. When the Gas Safe guy caps it he should do a pressure test to see if there are any leaks. :thumbright:

Just to update, all done and pressure test completed at the end. Took about 20 minutes and for those interested in comparing prices, came to £44 + VAT.
